some things i would suggest while doing action photography like that.. if u do pan, don't go that slow 1/30th of a second.. especially if ur just starting out.. 1/125th is good especially with faster moving bikes/cars.. younger/slower moving ones it will be easier to do.. also and i won't say never, but i would suggest not making a habit of leaving ur feat in a sitting or kneeling position in any racing sport where ur close to the action.. think reaction time and hospital er and damaged equipment..

I shoot stock car races every friday night (leaving shortly actually) and moto cross races every saturday and sunday through out the summer..

my preferences for panning or freeze frame? mx i like to freeze the action..mud in the air, bikes hitting each other, stopping them mid air in a jump is very dramatic... for stock car racing i prefer the illusion of speed so i use the panning technique.. as i say.. anyone can put a car on the corner of the track and take a stagnic (frozen) shot.. drivers like to see the "speed" their car has even if it is the slowest car on the track.

just my lil take on action photography.
